Mark Hunt says UFC 200 opponent Brock Lesnar 'probably should have stayed in retirement'

“Yeah, I don’t think it does anything for my ranking at all, but Brock is such a big name in the world of fighting. But this isn’t pro wrestling. This is real fighting. If you don’t come prepared, you’re going to get hurt. It doesn’t do anything for my ranking, and I’m not going to make a big deal after the fight about a title shot because Brock hasn’t been in the octagon for like 10,000 years or whatever. I thought he was retired. But he came back to the UFC, and I’ve got my party hat on.”

Frank Mir still interested in third fight with Brock Lesnar

"(Lesnar) doesn't like to be hit. Not that anybody likes to be hit, but Brock for whatever reason has shown much more of a dramatic response to the negativity of taking those shots. To the point to where he's not asleep, it isn't like he got knocked out, he's not getting dropped but he just turns his face away from adversity. That's a bad thing when fighting Mark Hunt, who I think it one of the hardest punchers in the division."

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - At Last

UFC 199 will not go down as the best Ultimate Fighting Championship event ever. By the time the last seven months of 2016 are over and done, it may not even be the greatest event of this year. No matter how the rest of the calendar plays out, however, UFC 199 will not soon be forgotten. Michael Bisping has spent just shy of a decade inside the Octagon, and for nearly all of his UFC tenure, onlookers questioned whether or not he would ever be granted a title shot, despite Zuffa’s desire to push the British star. When Bisping finally got his day in court, it came on two weeks’ notice against Luke Rockhold , a man who had handily dispatched him a year and a half prior. However, when “The Count” got his championship crack, he made it count. In under four minutes, Bisping landed the best strike of his career, dropping Rockhold with a beautiful left hook before knocking him out cold with picture-perfect punches on the follow-up. The Manchester, England, native has been a fixture in the Sherdog.com rankings since September 2011, but now, he is the king of the middleweight division.

UFC 200 Betting Odds: Mark Hunt Opens as Near 2-to-1 Favorite to Beat Brock Lesnar

Hard-hitting heavyweight Mark Hunt has been installed as the bookmakers’ favorite to win his UFC 200 clash against former champ Brock Lesnar . Several sportsbooks released their opening lines for the bout on Monday afternoon, just hours after the matchup was announced . Hunt’s moneyline opened around -200 at most books, meaning a bet of $200 would net a profit of $100. The lowest line for a Hunt victory is currently -205 at Sportsbook.ag, while the best-priced odds of -177 can be found at Pinnacle.com. Hunt is currently riding a two-fight winning streak and most recently saw action in March, when he punched out former Lesnar nemesis Frank Mir in three minutes. Lesnar, who has not set foot inside the Octagon since December 2011, is currently being tabbed as the underdog. Sportsbook.ag is offering a line of +167 for a Lesnar win -- meaning a $100 bet would net $167 profit -- while the lowest line is 5Dimes.com’s +155. Odds are even wider for the UFC 200 main event, where current UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is a +250 underdog to defend his belt against former divisional ruler Jon Jones .

Opinion: Exploring the UFC 199 Narratives

What a night. Usually I’m more loquacious than that, but UFC 199 was so busy an intersection of storylines that it’s hard not to arrive at some clichéd platitude. The event in its entirety was one of the best pay-per-view cards in recent memory, and it was as great as it was with only a modest amount of star-power behind it. There’s something refreshing about the fact that a fight card can still stand out on its merits of fighting more than anything else, especially given the various change-ups UFC 199 experienced in the last few weeks. Each of the main card’s winners built themselves up in meaningful ways, and while I usually like to stick to a single theme for these columns, such a night warrants a bit of exploration for each of the narratives that emerged. 1. Poirer’s Resurgence In his 17th Zuffa appearance, Dustin Poirer had never looked better. He tied his Ultimate Fighting Championship winning streak record (four) with his first-round TKO victory over Bobby Green , and he has finished three of those four fights within a round.

Opinion: How Muhammad Ali Changed My Life

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. It was inescapable, but I still couldn’t brace myself for the emotional impact with which I was to be hit when it was announced Friday that Muhammad Ali had passed away at the age of 74. For the past few years a story would surface every so often about Ali’s ailing health, but “The Greatest” managed to fight off the inevitable. Death finally caught up with the three-time heavyweight champion and left the world to mourn his passing with the gravity reserved for one of the greatest individuals this universe has ever known. For this particular writer, Ali was one of the greatest men to ever walk the earth. As a young African American male, Ali was my everything. Although I was too young to witness him in competition, the legacy he left behind was one that affected me immensely and ultimately led to my becoming a combat sports writer. What he taught me were valuable lessons I would carry throughout my life, and one of those lessons was to fight for everything you believe in and never, ever compromise, no matter the cost.

Joe Rogan

“One of the most complex and exciting stand-ups working in America today.  Like an idealistic hippy stuck inside the body of a testosterone-pumped US marine.  He’s been likened to late great US comedians such as Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, but although he exhibits a similar brand of furious indignation, his observations and revelations are entirely his own.  His angry, insightful act is an absorbing battle between his raw libertarian instincts and his refined liberal sensibilities.”   -- William Cook, The Guardian   A standup comedian for more than 20 years, Joe Rogan sells out theaters internationally with his inquisitive and intense comedic style. His comedy special “Joe Rogan: Live from the Tabernacle” was released in December 2012 via his website. Rogan previously starred in two hour long specials, “Talking Monkeys in Space” (2009) and “Joe Rogan Live” (2007), and released the CD’s “Shiny Happy Jihad” (2007) and “I’m Gonna Be Dead Someday” (2000). Rogan is host of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” a twice-weekly long form conversation with guests that is one of the most popular comedy podcasts on iTunes.

Matches to Make After UFC 199

No one can deny Michael Bisping ’s place in history now. After nearly 10 years and 26 appearances inside the Octagon, Bisping reached his desired destination, as he captured the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight title with a stunning first-round knockout of Luke Rockhold in the UFC 199 main event on Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Bisping buried Rockhold with punches 3:36 into round one, completing his unlikely ascent to the top of the 185-pound division. Never known as a power puncher, Bisping cut down the American Kickboxing Academy standout with two left hands. The first dazed and dropped Rockhold. The second, moments later, knocked him unconscious and left him defenseless against the cage. Bisping did the rest, forcing referee John McCarthy to step in on Rockhold’s behalf. At 37, he becomes the eighth UFC middleweight champion, following in the footsteps of Rockhold, Chris Weidman , Anderson Silva , Rich Franklin , Evan Tanner , Murilo Bustamante and Dave Menne . In wake of UFC 199 “Rockhold vs.

Brendan habitually mispronouncing every major UFC fighter's name on the roster is a nice touch, too. I also want to hear more about Bryan's mad greco skills.
